Paul O’Connell Picks His Lions XV & It’s An Interesting One
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Paul O’Connell has had a go at picking his Lions XV for this summer’s battle with the All Blacks.
The former British & Irish Lions captain was a guest on BBC 5 Live Sport last night, and discussed Eddie Jones and the Lions selection among other things.
O’Connell will be in studio with BBC for the duration of the Six Nations doing some punditry work, so it will be interested to see how this XV changes over the course of the RBS Six Nations. He says himself it will probably change after this weekend’s games.
